Finance your SME-company with a Liquidity Guarantee


Has your business been impacted by the corona crisis, and do you need liquidity from your bank to cover your company's expenses?

EKF is mandated to support the many Danish exporters struggling with liquidity problems in that their earnings decrease while they still have to meet supplier and payroll costs. With a Liquidity Guarantee, you have better prospects during the crisis. Under a liquidity guarantee, EKF covers 80% of any bank loss on new lines of credit extended to secure exporter liquidity.

You gain the liquidity you need to cover your current expenses.
You gain a stable financing plan.

Your company’s export trade must account for at least 10% of total turnover in your most recent financial statements. Export trade also includes sales to Danish export firms or to foreign tourists.
Your business has suffered or expects to suffer a decline in revenue of at least 30% as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic.
Your company must be creditworthy.
Your business must be conducted in an environmentally sound and socially responsible manner.

How a Liquidity Guarantee works

A Liquidity Guarantee helps you finance your company's current operating expenses if your earnings decrease as a result of the corona crisis.

We assume the majority of your bank's risk, and with our backing, it is more attractive for your bank to grant you a credit facility.
